Menu Plan Monday – April 27, 2015
Radishes are the theme Heather of Celiac Family picked for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap. Because radishes are so easy to grow and spout up quickly, I have always had the kids plant them so we usually end up with a boatload of the little guys. I don’t do anything very exciting with radishes most of the time – scrub, slice and toss on a salad, or add to Kimchi or Napa Cabbage Slaw. I do have a batch I am experimenting with fermenting right now. I’ll let you all know if they turn out tasty. My youngest (the picky princess) isn’t a big fan of radishes, so won’t eat the peppery little things raw, but will eat them sautéed. It is such and interesting way to eat radishes. Sautéing really cuts the spicy factor down and leaves you with a crisp tender bite. The recipes my family have liked are Sautéed Radishes with Spinach (with a piece of bacon chopped and cooked before adding anything else to the pan) and Sautéed Radishes (using coconut oil instead of butter). How do you eat radishes?
Freezer plan for the week: I am traveling with the family to the Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo in Chicago this weekend, so instead of freezer cooking, we’ll be packing. 🙂
Breakfast and lunch options: Sausage, eggs, and Spunky Coconut’s Grain Free Pumpkin Pancakes, fruit and veggies. Almond butter sandwiches, Confetti Chicken Nuggets, fruit and veggies.
Monday: Chicken Marsala with whatever veggies we have in the fridge for a simple sauté
Tuesday: Apple Veggie Sausage Quiche with Gluten and Dairy Free French Bread and salad
Wednesday: Clean-Out-The-Fridge Omelettes and salad
Thursday: We’ll be traveling to Chicago. So glad we have peeps at the house to take care of the dogs and be our chicken sitters. 🙂
Friday: We’ll be in Chicago for the GFAFexpo! Let me know if you’ll be there, too. I’d love to meet you!

I can’t remember ever cooking radishes. I’m anxious to give it a try, and see how the family likes it.
Have a good time at the expo!
